Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a diffuse interstitial lung disease (ILD) characterized by inflammation and progressive fibrosis of the lung parenchyma. Patients with IPF have sleep breathing disorders (SBD) that are associated with reduced sleep quality, reduced quality of life, worse survival. SBD, sleep related desaturation and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), have a high prevalence in patients with IPF but often remain undiagnosed. The diagnosis and treatment of DRS, particularly OSAS, can improve symptoms, quality of life and survival and should be pursued in all patients with IPF.

Abstract

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a diffuse interstitial lung disease (ILD) characterized by inflammation and progressive fibrosis of the lung parenchyma. Patients with IPF have sleep breathing disorders (SBD) that are associated with reduced sleep quality, reduced quality of life, worse survival. SBD, sleep related desaturation and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), have a high prevalence in patients with IPF but often remain undiagnosed. The diagnosis and treatment of DRS, particularly OSAS, can improve symptoms, quality of life and survival and should be pursued in all patients with IPF.
